Just wanted to let everyone at once know that I'm alive and doing (very) well, just haven't been keeping in touch as well as I should, 不好意思。
Let's see, what's going on in my life at present: Made some new, lasting friends recently; taught English today, with mixed, but mostly positive results; found a cool place where I can go to play the hell out of their drumset any night of the week; Mostly just meeting interesting people and learning an interesting language.
However, this week is midterm week, which means I'll become even more recluse than I have been already, if possible, and I apologize in advance. There's just so much I feel I have to learn in these last couple and a half months here. At times feel like I did when I first arrived, but simultaneously, I fully picture what live is like State-side now. I feel pretty much like i have a leg on each side of the fence, American studying Chinese for pleasure ad person living in China.
But still meeting really incredible people and places I don't quite have the energy to fully describe now. Midterm studies are wearing me out, but it's okay, because I have friends here and (of course) back home that I know I can return to for rest and recoup. Next weekend I might even sleep fully!
but no complaints, just possibly handy info. Also, just received your package today G&G!
Love to you and y'all
